Don’t miss this great article, Return on Community, about Tony Hsieh, CEO of Zappos. The article is not billed as a “wellness article.” But I’d rather follow Tony Hsieh’s lead and example of how to treat people and serve communities than any of the short-term, knuckle-headed concepts on incentives, health risk, BMI weight-loss schemes, HRAs, interventions, blah, blah, blah.
And while you’re at it, check out Zappos’ Wellness Program.
If you want a glimpse of the future, and insight on where the best people want to work, this is the kind of culture that attracts them. It’s the kind of thinking our employees, families, and communities deserve from us.
Read it and weep for all those poor souls who don’t work for Tony and other good people like him. Then do something about it!
